WHAT TO EXPECT
At the Church of God, we're always excited to welcome new visitors. We hope you'll join us for one of our services, and we want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Here's what you can expect when you come.
WE LIFT OUR VOICES IN PRAISE
Glorifying and worshipping God is our highest priority. We generally sing a cappella from hymnals and we encourage everyone to sing.
The greatest and most beautiful musical instrument ever created is the human voice. It is both delicate and powerful. Intricate yet simple; this instrument of worship was designed by God alone. With our voices, we join in a symphony of praise, each having an equal part in the celebration and harmony of the worship of God the Father and our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord. EPHESIANS 5:19
WE KNEEL WHEN WE PRAY
We bow not just our heads and hearts but our knees as well, in an attitude of reverence, respect, humility and homage to God. Feel free to kneel or to simply bow your head as the prayer is offered.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. EPHESIANS 3:14
THERE’S A CLASS FOR YOU
There are Sunday School classes for various age groups, including adults. The adult class is held in the sanctuary and the children’s classes are held in the adjacent classrooms. There will be someone to help direct you and/or your children to the age appropriate class.
COME AS YOU ARE
Please don't worry about what you'll wear to church, for we truly believe people should come to God as they are. You don't need to dress up to get his approval--that comes through Jesus' sacrifice. Once you walk in the doors, you'll see that the congregation has all types of people in all kinds of dress.
